HOW TO: Get 30,000 hits to your blog.........

(a primer from the folks that brought you "The Assignment" and other pontifications.....)

HOW TO: Get 30,000 hits to your 5 easy steps:

  1. Start a blog:
Easy enough, right? Or, in this case is it write? In any case (well, not really ANY case....) first you need to create an on-line destination for folks to actually read, share, and be inspired by your rants.

To do this you have many convenient choices. Here are but a few:

  • Blogger 
    • Does require a Google account 
      • (but hey, if you don't have one of these yet.... 
        • that's a different post altogether)
    • Easy to use, simple to customize, and absolutely FREE
  • Wordpress 
  • Tumblr
  • There are many, many, more to suite any taste or budget......
2. Write:

  • No, really. you need to write....a lot.
  • Then write some more.
  • Occasionally, you will actually write something worth publishing
  • Sometimes you will even publish something worth sharing....
  • Regardless, you must write. It's what writers do.
3. Plug

  • All the time
  • Other bloggers stuff
  • Novels
  • Non-Fiction
  • Periodicals
  • Read. All the time
5. Lather, rinse, repeat......

Do all of this and in a couple of years (or sooner if you are more talented than this hack) you too will have over 30,000 hits.

Still not convinced?
